This is a replacement turn signal flasher module. It will eliminate fast turn signal blinking, known as hyperblinking, that occurs when you replace your turn signal bulbs with LEDs. It has been designed specifically for use with LEDs.

This module is specifically for your vehicle! It will be 100% plug and play. Just remove the factory flasher, and plug this one in.


Why do you need this module? When your factory turn signal bulbs go out, your vehicle's flasher senses that less power is being used, and it will blink the turn signals quickly to alert you. When LED turn signal bulbs are installed, it lowers the load on the circuit too, because LEDs use less power. You get the fast blinking, known as "hyperblinking," even though the LEDs are functioning just fine. Basically, your car thinks the bulbs went out!

To slow down the blinking to regular speed, you can add resistors to increase the circuit's power consumption again. However, whenever possible, replacing the flasher with a module like this is the easiest option. This is the unit that actually controls the blinking speed, and makes the "clicking" noise.

  1. No Hyperblink, easy to install Review by Chris

    Works exactly as advertised. Just keep in mind, if you have big hands and/or thick arms you may have problems getting to the plug. I had to unfasten a few modules to get to it. (Posted on 5/19/15)

  2. EDIT: function = OEM; audible clicking off by a little Review by Subie Prepper

    After additional testing, I found that even though the audible "clicking" noise of the Diode Dynamics LED module is delayed briefly vs. the OEM module, the actual LIGHTS are illuminated immediately upon engaging the turn signal switch (stick). The clicking sound (and actual lights) continue for about 2.5 flashes after the stick pops back into place once the turn is complete, but this is obviously no big deal. (Posted on 8/20/14)

  3. No Hyper-Blink; Delay Issue; Easy Install (allows for mods) Review by Subie Prepper

    Product performs as advertised. I have never had the dreaded "hyper-blink" problem since I installed it and put in the HP11 turn signals. Install was straight-forward, and the construction of the module allowed for some minor modifications so that I could properly (firmly) install it in the same location as the original.

    This may well be a problem only with a Subaru, or a Forester, or just MY car, or even with the single module... but it bears mentioning.

    The module engages the new LED turn signals properly, with no hyper-blink. Look great, too! But there is now a noticeable delay in the audible "clicking" sound as well as the first/last actual "blinks" of the lights in relation to the action of the stick/switch on the steering column compared to the OEM module. When the stick is engaged, there is a very brief pause before the clicks/blinks begin; after the stick automatically pops back to the neutral position, the clicks/blinks continue -- at least 2-3 times. The OEM module triggers the first click/blink instantaneously with the engagement of the stick and cuts them off instantly when it returns to neutral. Again, not a "big deal," but I have already started to engage the stick earlier to indicate my turns, and the continued clicking after turns is just, well, awkward and annoying. I have also lost the ability to purposefully make ONE precise flash/blink. This is handy in just a few driving scenarios, like interstate lane changes in very light traffic, or to quickly indicate/warn a driver approaching me from behind that I am braking suddenly because the car IN FRONT of me is turning, not me (rear driver can't see their turn signal). Bummer. But not a deal-breaker. (Posted on 8/16/14)
